New EP, just a messenger, out now!
just a messenger is a call for bringing back the beauty of reverencing God. Trutha uses fragments of his past and present experiences to empathize with those currently struggling with identity, religion, and being unashamed of the gospel. The heart of the message and being a messenger is repentance both from sin and from unfruitful traditions, methods, and viewpoints that do not advance the gospel message or the beauties of the Way!
Born and raised on the south side of Chicago, Trutha was introduced to rap by his father, who introduced him to Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Kanye West, and several others that became huge inspirations. He began writing raps in high school, trying to navigate life and find purpose. “Hip-Hop was a therapeutic avenue where I could feel free to express things I never talk about to anyone.”
While in college, Trutha found direction through a personal experience with God. This birthed a desire to become a messenger for the culture of hip-hop and the world around him. Trutha approaches music as an outlet for sharing truth as well as his innermost thoughts on the world around him.
“Music is a place of transparency that I use to tell my story and the story of others to draw people closer to God. I’ve experienced so much survivors guilt in the past, and music helps me remember God’s plan and how I can help rescue the next generation. Hip-Hop is a great passion of mine, and I desire to use it to bring hope and inspiration to the lost.”
